A prestigious hotel featuring a mix of comfort, activities and a Patagonian welcome. Views over the lake are to die for. 

The welcoming Hotel Correntoso is 4km from Villa Angostura, and about an hour's drive from Bariloche airport. It is set in the foothills of the Andes, at the mouth of the Correntoso River where it enters Lake Nahuel Huapi. The property, founded in1917, has plenty of history. At that time the only way to access this remote corner of Patagonia was by boat or hydroplane, and the hotel blossomed from a small wooden cabin. Some of the beams and wooden frame-work of the old building have been preserved and combined with modern comforts. Nowadays, it is included in the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio.

All 27 rooms are slightly different some with a small terrace, others a large window cushion area, and 4th floor rooms have Juliet balcony. There is a splendid living room with beautiful panoramic views, and a library mainly dedicated to Patagonia. There is also a Gourmet Restaurant and wine bar fuses Mediterranean and Patagonian cuisine created with local game and produce, while Puerto Correntoso serves more casual fare on a deck overlooking the lake. At tea time a variety of home made pastries, chocolates and special tea blends are offered.

The comely spa takes advantage of some truly magnificent views across the lake to the mountains beyond.

Our Expert's Opinion

It would be hard to find a better located hotel than the Correntoso, right on the edge of the river, surrounded by forests. Most rooms have lovely lake views, some with spacious terraces and the food is superb. A swim in the outdoor pool with mountain views is a highlight of any stay here.
